-DBT-PE was developed as an adjunct to Standard DBT to treat trauma, so it can be conducted during the DBT Program as appropriate based on the client’s treatment needs. 

 

-If PE is being conducted during the DBT Program, then the 90 minute session would be in addition to the DBT group and DBT individual sessions each week. 

 

- DBT-PE can also be conducted after a DBT Program has finished or separate from DBT based on the needs of the client.

 

-DBT-PE sessions are typically 90 minutes per week.

 

-DBT-PE takes an average of 13 sessions but will vary based on the needs of the client.
